J Alvarez’s ‘La Fama Que Camina’ album certified gold by RIAA
Puerto Rican reggaeton singer J Alvarez has reached an immense achievement! His album ‘La Fama Que Camina’ released on March 30, 2018, was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last month, reflecting 500,000 album units earned in the U.S.
“I am extremely honored by this recognition, and accomplishing this as an independent label is not an easy task, but not impossible,“ Alvarez said in a statement. “My team has worked united and I thank each and every person that has made this possible. Thank you, RIAA for this incredible news that gives me life.”
The Puerto Rican urban singer and composer continued his gold celebration on Instagram. “Just act and let your success make the noise,” he wrote in his caption. In hype of the good news, he also promised fans new music on the way.
Alvarez’s 18-track project – which features hits like “Esa Boquita” and “De La Mia Personal” – is one of just 13 out of 75,000 albums released so far in 2018 that have been certified gold or platinum.
